Minimal Upfront Costs
Most experts recommend that you replace your servers every 3 years. The average cost to replace a single server with installation services can run about $10,000. On our CCare Hosting plan you never need to buy another server again. We buy the equipment and you don't have to spend money today only to spend it again in 36 months.
Security - Card Scan Monitored Access
Take a look at where you servers are currently stored. Is the room even locked? Do you know who has access to it? How about the power going into the room ... is it on a backup generator? In a disaster, you could always have your employees work from home, but if the servers are not up they will not get very far.
Are you certain your backup is working? More importantly are you certain that your information is being taken off-site in case of a serious problem with the facility? Wouldn't it be great to not have to worry about it and know that it is being taken care of by trained professionals?
Computers fail. It is a reality that at some point in the life of a computer, it will fail. The question is, are you prepared when it happens? With the CCare Hosting plan, your data is stored on a redundant sever cluster with multiple backups and failover systems that most if not all small to medium sized business could not afford. With all the things you have to worry about, a server failure should not be one of them.
Every minute of every day, your business is creating more data and it needs to be readily accessible. How can you afford to keep up with the demands of this storage ... added costs of hard drives and expanded backup up solution? Well, with CCare Hosting, your storage can grow affordably and you don't have to buy new hard drives every time your needs expand.
Who watches your data when you are not there? Most business don't give much thought to after-hours support ... until they have a proposal due the next day and their e-mail is down. That is when you need a team of people available night and day to handle problems and keep your system running.
High-Speed Redundant Access
Most employees have faster internet access at home than they do at work. Which creates a problem, working remotely is much slower than working in the office. Unfortunately, it is the office that is the bottleneck. Our high-speed access runs at 50 times the speed of the average home user. Remote work has never been so easy.
